The paparazzo who chased Justin Bieber down the freeways of LA, resulting in the pop teen getting a speeding ticket, has been charged for reckless driving.

According to TMZ, Paul Raef, who Bieber identified as the pap who sped off after police flagged the pop star down for driving too fast, faces four charges, two linked to a new bit of Californian law specifically targeted at celebrity snappers.

The photographer could face up to a year in jail and a $3500 fine if found guilty of the charges. Raef is now due in court on 9 Aug.
